This is definitely an interesting documentary that explores the history of the 2000AD comic book from it's inception in 1977 to 2014. Many of the writers, artists, editors and creators make appearances in the film to talk about their unique experiences working on 2000AD. I am new to the world of 2000AD and know very little about the history of the comic so for someone like myself this documentary was filled with a lot of fresh information and history. I would definitely recommend this documentary to any fan of 2000AD but I don't think it will be as informative to long time readers of 2000AD simply because it talks more about the history of the comic book itself rather than the opinions and stories of the creators themselves.
I didn't start reading 2000AD until 2019 I had heard of the comic when I was growing up because of the Judge Dredd character. I came across a pile of old issues of 2000AD in a small comic book store for 50p an issue the image on the cover of the first issue I picked up was of Judge Dredd and my immediate thought was of the Dredd (2012) movie starring Karl Urban. I thought to myself Dredd was an awesome movie so maybe the comics are worth reading so I grabbed a handful of random 2000AD issues and decided to give them a read.
I am so glad I gave 2000AD a chance because after reading just a few old issues from the 1980s I wanted to read even more. I have since read as many of the old issues as I can find in my local comic book stores. I even signed up for of a subscription to the comic so I can get the latest issues delivered to my home. I'm a little to party but it's never too late to start a new hobby.
2000AD is filled with some of the most inventive and most violent stories you can imagine from classic characters and stories that continue to this day to a whole new generation of characters in the newer issues. 2000AD continues to thrive and provide unique, original and interesting stories that are so violent and over the top with absolutely beautiful artwork where the blood leaps off the pages.
